Is there a way to mark clips while they are playing in premiere. I'm used to editing on Avid where I can hit my marker key to add a marker which opens the diagolue box at the same time to type my comment all while the footage is continuing to play. Is there a way to do this in premiere?
As far as I know you can put markers on clips by pressing the M key while the media is playing, that shouldn't be a problem but when you right click on the same marker to open the dialogue box the media stops.
I know it is not an answer to your question but let's get this thread going. It is an interesting topic!
If pressing the marker key would both place the marker and open the dialogue box to type a comment that would be ideal. Also, another helpful thing Avid does is give you a little banner with the marker text in the program or source monitor when you snap to it on the clip. It seems in Premiere I have to open the "edit marker" window on each individual marker if I want to read what I wrote.
you can have the marker window open to see the name of the markers and if you give the marker a duration the name will appear in the timeline or in the clip
and if you hover the cursor over the marker, the name appears.
thank you that's good to know!
